Irish dancers show city off in such a positive fashion
This week the Waterfront Hall in Belfast will be filled with colour, music and rhythm as the All-Ireland Dancing Championships take place.
Thousands of competitors from many different places will converge in the city as they step out to prove that they are the best in the world.
Such competition builds determination and self-confidence, it encourages discipline and creativity, and it brings a sense of achievement to the heart of our capital.
Everyone who takes part in this wonderful spectacle of poetry in motion deserves our congratulations, as the fairer face of Belfast is shown to the entire world.
